COVID Level 3 restrictions in place as school resumes

12th Oct 2021

I hope you were able to enjoy a change of pace over the holiday break and take some time out with your family to refresh for Term 4.
As a reminder Guyra Central School site is still operating under COVID safe Level 3 conditions:
• Staff are required to wear masks indoors and outdoors while on school grounds.
• Masks or face coverings are recommended for primary students in indoor and outdoor settings on school grounds.
• We are reducing the overall mingling of our different cohorts which means no school assemblies or sport (outside of existing PDHPE classes), excursions or field trips.
• Only essential visitors will be allowed on site and will be required to check in and wear masks at all times.
• Our canteen will operate daily with appropriate hygiene measures in place.
• Parents and carers will need to remain outside of school grounds, follow physical distancing and avoid gathering for drop-offs and pick-ups.
• There will be enhanced daily cleaning of the school and wherever possible we will ensure classrooms will be well-ventilated with open windows.
• Breakfast Club and Homework Centre will continue to run following COVID-safe plans.
The Department of Education has worked closely with NSW Health in developing our return to school roadmap and COVID-safe school plan. NSW Health will continue to monitor vaccination rates and transmission levels in our LGA and will advise us if settings need re-evaluation.
I encourage you to get in touch with me directly and visit the Wellbeing for students and families page for support materials.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
Mrs Michelle Nicholson
